Orange has officially announced that the iPhone will go on sale November 10th, ending O2’s exclusive.
It will be on sale in Orange shops and the web site, Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U amongst other outlets.
As expected, the tariffs aren’t much different to the prices already offered by O2, and there’s no price war to be seen here.
The iPhone 3G will be available on Pay As You Go for £333, although you’ll have to purchase a £50 top-up as well.
If you don’t want to pay for the phone, you can pick up a 24 month contract and a free 16GB 3GS for £45 a month. Or a free 3G for £30 per month.
The CEO of Orange UK, Tom Alexander, enthused: “The excitement for the iPhone is immense, and this is a great day for our customers, our company and our employees. Since we announced the iPhone on Orange we have already seen more than a quarter of a million customers register their interest on our website.”
The next iPhone milestone will be Vodafone’s launch of the phone early in 2010.
